Preview

In Analogical Modeling, language prediction is closely determined by the specific variables used. The kinds of structures that must be dealt with in a full theory of analogical prediction include strings of characters, scalar variables, syntactic trees, and semantic variables. These structures as well as a number of procedural issues are discussed in this chapter.

Keywords: analogy; Analogical Modeling; exemplars; types of structure; specifying variables; weighting variables
